What is the advantage of being in someone's fluther?

Asked by Mr_M (7591points) August 7th, 2008

And if someone puts me in her fluther, do I need to put her in mine? Why or why not? Is there an added advantage?

As far as I know the only real advantage is that you can make it so you only see questions asked by people in your Fluther.

I don’t feel obligated to add people if they add me. But I add people all the time. I don’t consider it a friends list. For me it is a list of people that have said something interesting. Some people have added me and I don’t know who they are. I don’t add them.

Well, it’s a kind of status thing for most people. If someone likes what you have to say, they’ll add you to their Fluther. You get two lurve and are listed in the other person’s Fluther when you get added. The more Fluthers you’re in, the more people like you/what you have to say, thus the more the better. Plus, it’s just nice to feel lurved, isn’t it? =)

Another thing is that when you add someone to your Fluther, you can see all of their recent activities.

As for adding someone to your Fluther just because they added you, I don’t. I only add people when I’m interested in what they have to say. If someone adds me to their Fluther, that’s great, but if I don’t like what they have to say or have absolutely no idea who they are, I don’t see any reason to add them as well.

Personal gratification would be the narcissist’s rationale.
Social positioning would be the bourgeois’ lilt.
Recognition and support belong to the self-depracating…....
And….
.......for the groupie in us all…...

@Mr_M – it’s kind of like the “faves” feature in AV. you can follow the activity of the people in your fluther.

You’re special!

*2 lurve points, not 3 :)

I like everyone some of the time, some people all of the time and no one none of the time
so I don’t keep a list. When I log on, I check the day’s new questions for those that sound interesting, informative or original.

Oh, sorry! My bad!

When somebody removes you from their fluther, do you lose the points you’d gained when they added you, or do you get to keep those points as consolation?

loser's avatar

No, you keep the points!

@ loser…thanks for the info. And so sorry to call you loser! (I do it against my best wishes.)

It’s quite all right! It makes me laugh!!!

What if you add someone, remove someone, add someone, remove someone…?
Will they get like a gajillion points? Or just the initial two?

jlm11f's avatar

@Nimis – They will just get the inital 2.

Darn. Was thinking about other ways to thank Shilolo and Harp.
I’m sure I’ve maxed out my lurve-giving with those two!
